BDS Activist at JVP Conference Urges ‘Guerilla Disobedience’ Against Israel

Palestinian activist and Stanford University graduate Fadi Quran told the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) conference Friday night that “guerilla disobedience” is needed against Israel. Quran, who was arrested by Israeli security forces in 2012, told his fellow participants that activism was not enough.

They must become “freedom fighters.”

“We must realize that it’s not enough to be organizations, to be civil society anymore. We must cross the threshold to become resistance movements. And we must realize that it’s not enough to protest anymore. We must transform the equations of power,” Quran said.

“Guerilla disobedience” means copying tactics used by American anarchists to shut down traffic, Quran said. In this case, Israeli army supply chains would be targeted along with the economy in order to make occupation costly for Israel.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
